>Is akathisia something most doctors are trained to deal with?

Not really, only psychiatrists. I would discuss it as restlessness, tension, jaw clenching and anxiety, rather than akathisia. And of course mention the recently stopped mirtazapine, which I suppose they may encourage you to restart.

On the other hand, a GP may be willing to give you a few diazepam tablets to see you through the next week. It doesn't sound like you had any clear paradoxical reaction to it before. You'll just need to mention which benzos you definitely can't take so they don't try to prescribe any of those.

Do you have a psych you can see?
